You have a 1 in 100,000 chance of dying from a bee sting - which are about the same odds you have of being struck by lightning or being injured by a pogo stick.

The annual income of all the church members in the world (approximately 2 billion people) is $30.5 trillion. Only 0.1% of that annual income is given to Christian missions each year ($31 billion). From there, $26.9 billion (87% of missions giving) goes toward missions in "Reached" areas, where they already have access to the gospel. Praise God that resources are being given and people are being reached! Unfortunately, however, that means only 1% of total missions giving goes toward reaching Unreached People Groups ($310 million). That's only .001% of our $30.5 trillion income. In other words, for every $100,000 that Christians make, we only give $1 to reaching the unreached. 1 in 100,000.

As we give toward advancing the kingdom, what if we reallocated our resources in such a way as to reach the 2.84 billion people in the world who have no access to the gospel? We as Christians literally have the financial resources to fulfill the Great Commission. How can we use our dollars to take seriously the call to "make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28.19)?

Let's celebrate the resources already given and pray about how we can use the power of our dollars to support what the Lord is doing among the Unreached peoples of the world.
